Hi, AstroCat, they are, in fact, part of the restock. We received the restock list after I answered your post!

Are these ever coming around again... OR how quickly/easeily can you dry brush them yourself? Thanks.

Lots of good advice in there from many DF experts!

i have also seen people ho painted the underside blue... lends a nice cast to the whole piece
That's what I did with mine. The trick, I think, is to get an ink/wash (I used a thinner on a paint to mixed results) in the teal range. Then dry brush an off white on the top surface. Too white looks unnatural.

If you want them a deep blue use Tamiya Clear Blue on them. Very simple. Then drybrush the parts you want extra detail in to finish them up. On my sets I painted it all blue and then drybrushed only the floors.

For white, there are quite a few near white colors offered by Reaper among others that can give you good results.

Huh - didn't know that about them. However, I will agree they are VERY easy to drybursh - so much so that I even tried it (and I don't paint ANYTHING) with special help and advice from Unclebilly.

Here is a video on basic dry brush technique.
